Receiving Data via Internet

    Apr 20 2010 | 10:47 pm
    Hey all,
    Recently I've been looking at some of the projects listed on this website, and several caught my eye, dealing with data gathering from various websites (project 52: Tectonic comes to mind). I was curious to learn how this is achieved, as I feel it would be a very interesting route to explore. Any help?

      Usually it's done with jit.uldl + jit.textfile for downloading the stuff, and jit.str.regexp for parsing the data. There's various of example around the forums.

      Thank you, I appreciate your help.
      I haven't really worked with jitter yet, as my computer music class doesn't cover it, but I will be sure to dive into its workings asap.

      If you have not Jitter and that you're in the mood, you can build your own java class and integrate it in a mxj external. Sometimes it's easy to use java for this sort of things, plus there might already some pre-maid classes for what you want to do.
